The next batch of new Fort Point restaurants is looming, with Pastoral opening as early as this weekend and Bastille Kitchen now shooting for early next month. The Globe gives a preview of the 11,000-square-foot "French bistro," a development worth $4 million that will seat 300. Owner Seth Greenberg also co-owns Mistral, an upscale restaurant focusing on Southern French cuisine; Bastille Kitchen will be at "a little lower price point" and "very Parisian," he tells the Globe. The article notes that entrees will range from $18 to $42. (Mistral's entrees: $24-$45.)
Former Ritz-Carlton executive sous-chef Adam Kube will helm the kitchen. "It's about taking the time to develop every flavor at every step of the cooking process," Kube tells The Improper Bostonian. "It'll take eight hours to make the onion soup." He also mentions that the nearby Tea Party museum (the colonial Tea Party, that is), will inspire several tea-infused dishes, from tea-smoked mussels to a tea-brined lamb shank.
